Red spider veins (also called spider veins) are known as Telangiectasia and occur where there is clear indication that some of the tiny vessels on the surface of the skin are no longer working well and blood is trapped in them.
This can be very unsightly and embarrassing for the person because they develop an uncontrollable ruddy completion.
When left untreated these veins simply continue to spread.
This condition is most often seen in people with light skins, particularly people of Celtic origin but can occur in mid-range colour skins. It can be due to over-exposure to the sun, heat or certain medications, stress, autoimmune diseases, nutritional deficiency, or can be inherited.
Over-use of alcohol also starts onset by causing a B vitamin deficiency so the texture of the vessels are not so strong and people lose some of their ability to regulate their body temperatures.
Menopause is another time of onset for this disorder when women suffer from sweats and overheating as oestrogen and progesterone levels drop.
Spider vein treatment with IPL laser helps cauterise these veins and eradicate them so the skin returns more to a normal colour.
A series of spider vein treatments carried out with short intervals in between quickly deals with the problem in a very short period of time.
We also recommend vitamins and herbal support to help the texture of the blood vessels improve.
